Chèvrefeuille's Gift #6 gust of wind

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I had some spare time, so I have another episode of our special feature "Chèvrefeuille's Gift to You to Celebrate Our First Luster of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai" (or short "Chèvrefeuille's Gift"). In this special feature I challenge you with one of the several special features here at CDHK. This episode I love to challenge you to complete a haiku with only a given first line and to challenge you a little bit more I love to ask you to create a troiku with the haiku you have created. More about Troiku you can find above in the menu.

Here is the first line to use for your haiku, so this "gift" is an episode with a twist of "Carpe Diem Only The First Line".

with every gust of wind
Try to create a haiku with this first line and when you have created it create a Troiku with it.

Here is my attempt:

with every gust of wind
smoke from the water cauldron
shadows on the wall

And now to create a Troiku with it .... hm ... let's see ...

with every gust of wind
the windchime moves
breaking the night's peace

smoke from the water cauldron
swirls to the blue sky in praise
jasmine tea

shadows on the wall
created by the hands of children
telling a story
